I installed a few days ago a new motherboard, CPU and RAM in my computer, practically building it anew. The operating system I installed is openSUSE.

After that my PC doesn't come back from suspend mode by using neither the keyboaord or mouse. Furthermore after a day or two after leaving my PC turned on all night, I found it in the morning completely frozen (mouse pointer frozen, time frozen 5 before the current time etc).

Furthermore, yesterday while working the PC froze completely out of the sudden for a minute and then it resumes working, but in the task manager's graph I saw the CPU cores jumping like crazy.

At last today while working, out of the blue the PC restarted and while booting it showed the following message:

[0.312256] mce: [Hardware Error]: Machine check events logged
[0.312312] mce: [Hardware Error]: CPU 5: Machine Check: 0 Bank 5: bea0000000000108
[0.312315] mce: [Hardware Error]: TSC 0 mce: ADDR 1ffff814f3510 mce: MISC d012000101000000  

I am not sure whether that was the exact or whole message as it dissapeared quickly. What I pasted was the message I found in the logs and I think it is the one presented while booting.

It is important to say that I don't know whether all the other issues I mentioned are relevant but I listed them in case they are.

For a PC with completely new hardware, what is the problem? As it says "hardware error" I am seeing it as serious.


  1. The motherboard is MSI A320M PRO-VH PLUS(MS-7B07)
  2. The CPU is AMD Ryzen 5 1600 Six-Core Processor
  3. The RAM is HyperX HX424C12PB3/8 1.2 Volt DDR4 2400 MHz


It just restarted again. The error message seems to be:

[0.297216] mce: [Hardware Error]: Machine check events logged
[0.297253] mce: [Hardware Error]: CPU 4: Machine Check: 0 Bank 0: baa0000000060185

  • What is your motherboard? What is your memory? Is the memory compatible with the motherboard in terms of timing, voltage, supported brand, etc? – Eric F Jan 11 '18 at 18:45
  • @EricF I will add them in the question. – Adam Jan 11 '18 at 18:56

    Am I blind or did you not add them to the question? – Eric F Jan 11 '18 at 19:04
  • @EricF I am searching about the RAM. I installed lshw and I am trying to familiarize myself with it. – Adam Jan 11 '18 at 19:16
  • Memory seems compatible. Try running MemTest86 on your memory and stress test your cpu. When stress testing the CPU see if that starts to trigger errors or it shuts down then. It seems very possible that something is wrong with your CPU based on your errors you posted – Eric F Jan 11 '18 at 19:22
